Publisher's Summary

Ivanhoe is the perfect novel for any listener who loves an action-packed adventure based on the mythology and legends of Medieval times in England. Set in the 12th century, Ivanhoe is the story of a young man who joins up with Richard the Lion Hearted during a dark time where England is split between the Normans and the Saxons, pitting friends and family against each other through the conquering of land and the changing seats of the Royal Family.

After Fighting in the Holy Crusades, Ivanhoe returns to reclaim his love, stolen from him by his own father who intends to marry her into Saxon Royalty as the descendant of a long dead king. King Richard, with little interest in ruling the Kingdom of England, has allowed his brother, the despicable Prince John, to rule in his absence, sending the land into dismal times. After his capture, Richard escapes Austria, where he travels in disguise awaiting a rising to overtake Prince John and reclaim the throne.

The novel is a riveting adventure of jousting knights, damsels in distress, burning castles, escape and capture, and includes the famous Robin Hood and his Merry Men of bandits in an attempt to save the true King and Ivanhoe.

    "One of Walter Scott’s Best Works!"

    Hats off to the narrator, David McCallion, for doing a wonderful job on this read. His voice was a perfect fit for this story transporting you to Medieval England with his delightful British accent and character voices...

    The story follows a young man during a time of turmoil in England, where he finds himself in the midst of the fight between the Normans and the Saxons, pitting all of England against each other. Filled with exciting adventure, English mythology, and many jousting knights, the narrative will draw you right into the adventure from the very beginning.

    Ivanhoe by Walter Scott is truly a work of art that many can and will enjoy. Don't think twice about adding it to your collection!

    "Excellent Rendition of a Classic"

    Ivanhoe the tale needs no introduction, if you are expecting the movie you will not find it although for Hollywood the movie did stay close. The performance was excellent marred only, strange to say, the book itself. This was meant for reading not performing so sometimes the conversations get a little clunky. Well worth the time.

    "Good book, bad narrator"

    I've read this book several times, it's a classic.

    This audio is maybe worth the 99¢ it cost.

    I've gotten to chapter 4 and not sure if I'll finish. My main complaints so far:

    The narrator makes many mistakes in voice infection when reading dialogue. You can figure out how it's meant to be, but it gets annoying.

    Oddly, he uses the same voice for Gurth and Wamba which I imagine would be confusing to someone unfamiliar with the book.

    Prior Aymer's voice is also strange, like an old man instead of the lusty 40 year old he is.

    Like I said, I've only gotten to chapter 4, and it's not good. Disappointing, because it's a great book.

    "Worst narration EVER"

    Voice Inflection for inflection's sake with no reasonable relation to the meaning of the words spoken. As if a male Siri was narrating, but worse.

    Unbearable!
